10:02 pm
asylum seekers but the initiative stands little chance of passing through the sharply divided congress here is part of what trump said about his plan earlier today here on this very beautiful spring day in the rose garden to unveil our plan to create a fair modern and lawful system of immigration for the united states and it's about time. if it dopped it our plan will transform america's immigration system into the pride of our nation and the envy of the modern world are the roads the u.s. president speaking of ever will for more on trump's immigration reforms a plan that was put together by the way by his sudden wall gerri let's go to our correspondent in washington alexander
10:03 pm
a fun good evening to you alexander so tell us a little bit more about the trump plan but we all know it's really the trump plan. yes so the trump administration or what trump has said today is that he wants to transform or to create a for no fool and more there are no immigration system that is based on merits and that means trump wants to majority of the people coming into the country to be educated and skilled workers scientists doctors engineers and he wants to limit the number of people who are coming into the you asked because they have family here family members that are already you as citizens and he also wants to limit the number of people seeking asylum he said today that the you asked asylum system is being used but by frivolous claims he has not presented any details or evidence
10:04 pm
for that basically what the trump white house is proposing is a sort of pardon system that would make it easier for unskilled well educated workers who can speak english and may already have half a job offer to come to the u.s. this plan is similar to what we find in king of the in australia for example but those countries do not have the dreamers young people who came illegally to the united states as children what what about them in this plan. was quite striking that the plan does not address the dreamers and there are a faint roughly 3600000 the line young people who were granted to work permits and protection from deporting by the obama administration about president as we know it eliminated this obama era program and now those young people are in limbo pending court's decisions so the plan is not addressing this issue and that's why
10:05 pm
it's rather odd likely that democrats are going to support this plan and the chances of getting this plan through they're not very good or they know slim to none i would say that not only the democrats are not support supporting this plan the republicans are not techie with that either this plan is not designed to become low that's what senator graham said and he is a republican and a trump ally a washington bureau chief alexander phenomenon the story tonight with this trump immigration plan alexander thank you here in germany a small radical far right party has been staging marches that evoke the country's nazi past cold the roots of a group the 3rd way they're fielding here that it's the european parliamentary elections next week w reporter ruth crones there has been 2 are telling where the
10:06 pm
extremist group has found followers despite calls for the party to be bigger. this is plowman in eastern germany and the office of the political party due to vehicle or 3rd path. they sell secondhand clothing here for germans the party cast itself as being a party of the people the german people the party also shares information here on its program it wants to see the german borders shift back to where they were before the 2nd world war and cut right through the middle of poland they said german women should have more children and immigration should be stopped. deal germany is a place where politicians have the final say and they always have germans we support closing the borders and we believe this foreign infiltration cannot continue. again and again the 3rd path has marched through plow and most recently at the beginning of may there
10:07 pm
marches are reminiscent of hitler's 3rd the torches flags and drums. party has polarized the people of. torches to our uniforms it was creepy i find it a bit frightening. some of their ideas you can't fault. it's horrible that they've set up base here and the people indulge them. whether groups are allowed to demonstrate here is up to the local district office if demonstrators wear uniforms or if there's the threat of violence then a rally can be banned but so far authorities haven't acted. local authorities have often been accused of not using the full extent of the law against far right groups many say they downplay the threat they pose or turn a blind eye the marches are repeatedly allowed. because it's about rights and the
10:08 pm
rule of law and i think it's important the playing field both legally and judicially is extended as far as possible the sometimes i would like to see more courage from local authorities political scientist says just restricting the neo nazi demonstrations is not enough he is calling for a complete ban on the party. even though they are a small group i think they need to be banned because they audiology and the orientation is fundamentally the same as national socialism. but that's still far off because it's difficult to do so under german law so the 3rd path party is running in next week's european elections. in a political correspondent. this really is is an issue about history remembering history and also free speech coming together here how big
10:09 pm
of a force is this party really. i would say essentially not very big and i would say so because he will look at reports by germany's domestic intelligence agency they have been monitoring this group very closely and they produce reports every now and then about their activities they describe it as a far right extremist small party and if you look at different reports you will see that about 100 souls between 10500 depending on the sources that you look they will you will have the number of members of this group but it's in the hundreds they say so it doesn't seem to be a very big party it is however a party that i well i we've just seen in our report has created a lot of headlines because of its style on the content as well and that content is precisely the reason why german authorities are monitoring it very coast is there is serious effort to begin the 3rd way. well there have been proposals to try and
10:10 pm
ban it we also saw it in a report brand but banning a party in germany is a very difficult and a very negative process as well so when you talk to authorities in saxony for example or in other parts of germany where this group has a presence what they have said is that they're going to use all legal possibilities against neo nazi demonstration of they're going to discuss this issue with other authorities as well again because banning such a party is extremely difficult and lengthy but authorities have indeed faced a lot of criticism in recent times in particular for allowing these kinds of demonstrations so it is a very controversial issue here in germany and one that i am absolutely sure will continue to be debated to what extent can a party that has these kinds of rallies be allowed to take them or whether they should be banned completely oh they shouldn't remove the parties on the left in
10:11 pm
this country claim that there is a relationship between extremist groups and the far right of the party which is now germany's main opposition party what does the do you say to their. well the a.f.p. hasn't shown a very clear line when it comes not only to this party but in general to those reported links between the parties or groups described as far right or as extremist we saw that for example in the recent protests in the a if he had indeed to distance itself from groups like they get up at the same time you see members of the team marching alongside there are also reports that i was looking at that in some of the the demonstrations that happened some time ago they were hot some members of the way that were there present as well so in a way the f.t. has on the 100 to distance itself but on the other hand there are certain links and the big question that arises from this is where does the benefit whether it
10:12 pm
benefits all the way these connections actually homme this body that as you say brant is the main opposition party here in germany and. the party does defeat in the fact that it gets all of this media attention which we know authorities or political correspondents almost bear on the story for us tonight thomas thank you. well here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world all 3 of the lawmakers have approved a wall banning head scarves in primary schools adding to existing restrictions on veils the measure bans the wearing of ideologically or religiously characterized clothing that covers the head islamic organizations are threatening legal action german chancellor angela merkel has kwacha speculation that she might seek a top job in the european union after she stepped down as germany's leader last year the chance or gave up the leadership of her center right party and said she will not seek a 5th term as chancellor clashes have

10:15 pm

10:16 pm
is neymar extremes that lives. in my opinion this is human trafficking and the chinese government is responsible for this if their citizens are doing these things . pakistan recently arrested at least 8 chinese nationals suspected of trafficking women and more arrests are expected. china says it has 0 tolerance for the practice but human rights minister says beijing is enabling marriage broke has by issuing visas and documents to pakistani brides without asking questions. it's a night in sudan the struggle for democracy has been marred by violence the ruling military council is refusing to hand over power last month the army overthrew president omar al bashir after massive protests all those same army generals have now broken off because usually it's with groups about a transition to civilian rule but the protests continue we have this report tonight

10:18 pm
a prominent activist that. forcibly stripped me they ripped my shirt and trousers they started saying inappropriate things and threatened to rape me i felt ashamed being in front of so many people and being naked and having all these things said to you it's been a huge psychological toll. another witness to the cost of the revolution is dr enamel. she helps run this field clinic at the heart of the sit in in front of the army headquarters in the days leading up to the removal of ahmed al bashir in april this clinic was at the front lines of the violence. there were people coming in with all kinds of gunshot wounds head wounds i were inside leg wins and all of the body there were just randomly shooting people even had sniper when most. doctors themselves were also targeted by al bashir is regime
10:19 pm
. i don't know why. this videotape. a new year's eve shows for doctors being arrested by the military on the street in front of a hospital in hush to. the last time doctors says it's because doctors have historically been at the forefront of organizing strikes and protests against the regime. no matter how many times doctors were attacked they stayed in the hospitals this was mary annoying for their own bashir regime that's why they tried everything they could against us and arrested us i took part in demonstrations and matches but i never did say i was a doctor it was dangerous despite the violence dr drew doesn't believe retribution is the way forward for sudan and this is the message i met hamdoon has for those attacking and abusing protesters. despite you torturing me i went out to protest for you too. sometimes i think about revenge.
